GBTA Web-Based Learning 

What is a GBTA Webinar?

Due to limited financial resources, time, and family commitments, we know how difficult it is to attend meetings, conferences and workshops. It’s easy to miss the learning opportunities that help you to stay abreast of the latest technologies, newly-passed regulations and updated processes. GBTA has a solution to meet your needs.  We are able to provide online training via GBTA Webinars and On-Demand GBTA Webinars - bringing you lectures covering a wide range of topics that are specific, educational, interactive and cost effective.

GBTA Webinars are web-based distance learning and educational programs that allow GBTA Members and Chapter Members to participate in live interactive forums on business travel industry issues and simultaneously view presentations. Each GBTA Webinar program runs up to 60 minutes in length. A host moderator fields questions or comments from the participants and directs them to the presenter, allowing for group interaction and feedback.
